Misuse. Fragile speedsters are fragile, not weak.
* Related to the toy example above, a couple of video games based on the Movie-universe ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' had forklift Autobot and Decepticon drones as common, low-level enemies (or players!). Contrary to the lumbering but lethal image implied by their alternate modes, the forklift drones are actually [[FragileSpeedster weak but quick]].

* The forklift is an unlockable Easter Egg in ''VideoGame/EscapeVelocity''. It comes with an MST3K sound bite, and is an overpowered Missile Launcher-like weapon.

* In ''DeathWishII'', bad guys try to kill protagonist Paul Kersey with a forklift, but he escapes. Reversed in ''DeathWish4TheCrackdown''; he rides around in a forklift shooting, then moves out of sight. The forklift then comes on a kamikaze course for the gang of thugs only for them to realise at the last minute it's just full of boxes instead this time.

* ''Film/FinalDestination 3'' set us up for one by putting an out-of-control forklift on a collision course with a bunch of characters we know to be doomed. At the last minute, it crashes into a shelf instead and a much lamer death by nail gun ensues.

Added DiffLines:
* ''Warehouse And Logistics Simulator'' amusingly has a zombie mode called "Hell's Warehouse" which puts the player in the fork-lift seat as they attempt to escape a warehouse during a ZombieApocalypse. You can of course run them over but you also get special weapons like mines and buzzsaws.

They're also dangerous, intentional or not ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oB6DN5dYWo as this informative German Safety Video parody shows]][[note]]Caution, it gets a bit BlackComedy gore-ie towards the end.[[/note]]). This trope is all about using them as a type of weapon; running over people, impaling victims on the forks or just crushing them under some heavy load, it doesn't really matter
